Celeb Luxury Gem Lites: What You Need to Know
Keeping your hair color on point is a full time job ladies. Believe me, this is something I spend too much time on myself. Is it too much to ask that my blonde hair stay blonde? I didn’t ask for these golden streaks. I actually paid for ash-blonde. So, well water, if you could please stop depositing the minerals in my hair that change it’s color. If I could get three wishes out of a genie in a bottle, I’d ask them to fix this little problem. Thanks to Celeb Luxury, I don’t even need a one.
I don’t have a genie in a bottle. What I do have is a product that’s a little bit magic, a little bit toning, and a lot of satisfactory results. The brand Celeb Luxury released a line of shampoos called “Gem Lites” which help to keep your color looking fresh while nourishing your hair. Doesn’t that sound like magic? Most colored shampoos that claim to help colored hair aren’t as strong, and therefore their results aren’t as obvious.
Gem Lites Colorwash comes in 10 different gem shades. From “Diamond” to “Ruby” there’s a gem shade for every hair color. The different Colorwashes help replenish your color and bring out the lightest shades in your hair. They manage this feat by correcting brassiness with the use of sulfate-free, paraben-free, ammonia-free, peroxide-free, PPD-free product. Get this: Gem Lites Colorwash is also 100% vegan.
I tried “Diamond” and “Tahitian Pearl” to see if I could get the exact shade of blonde I’ve been after for quite a while. Let me tell you, this product not only helped boost my blonde to the perfect shade of ash but it actually helped my hair feel softer after being colored. Not really what I expected, but who am I to complain about that wonderful side effect?
Tahitian Pearl was the perfect shade to use on a client who wanted “Salt and Pepper” hair. She struggled with golden tones and brassiness developing almost as soon as she colored her hair. With one use of Tahitian Pearl, the brassiness was gone and the gray hair she was trying to embrace looked fantastic.
Right now, Gem Lites Colorwashes are only available through professional supply or authorized retailers but let’s be real. These babies will catch on so fast (and they’re affordable!!) so get yourself ready to scoop up the perfect gem tone to suit your hair.
